Design-wise, the Galaxy S5 is the second most disliked Galaxy S flagship in history (poll results)
5 years after the introduction of the first Samsung Galaxy S line smartphone, we thought a walk down memory lane is fitting. On Monday, we asked you to consider all 7 devices that have been made available so far under the S moniker, and give us insight into your tastes — which one did you think looked best, design-wise? The results are now in.
you were surprised, though. Why? Because the still very recent Samsung Galaxy S5 bombed.Almost 2,600 people took our call and voted for their favorite Galaxy S device, and the resulting split is fairly consistent with what we expected. It'll be interesting to go through the comments and see if
Indeed, with just 94 votes (3.65%), the S5 is only ahead of the original Galaxy S, which grabbed 26 votes (1.01%). The most votes went to the Galaxy S6/S6 edge, with 1795 people (69.63%) giving Samsung thumbs up. The Galaxy S II landed second, with 322 votes, or 12.49%, followed by the Galaxy S4 (6.63%) and S III (6.59%).
Again, we're not at all surprised to see the Galaxy S5 at the bottom — we were less than ecstatic when Samsung first showcased it over a year ago. As some of you might remember, Chang Dong-hoon — the designer behind the S5 — promptly stepped down (or was pushed out) from his position as head of mobile design, and was replaced with his VP, Lee Min-hyuok. The negative reception was obviously a wake up call for Samsung, for the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge reverted popular opinion completely, as seen from the results below. Check them out:
